San Cristobal De Las Casas: Part 1

Hello our dear 3 readers,  we took a break from the blog but now we are back with full force ready to report on trips to Iceland, Mexico, and Nashville.  Let’s start with our most recent trip to the state of Chiapas in the south-east part of Mexico.  We needed to go to Mexico City…

Albuquerque

Our last day in New Mexico was a quick one, partly because we did not have a lot of time until we needed to go to the airport, but mostly because there is nothing to do there anyway. Although it is the largest city in the state, Albuquerque is often overshadowed as a tourist destination…

Tent Rocks

When we travel to a city, we try to find a nice outdoors activity for a day.  This country offers so much beautiful natural landscapes, mostly unknown, that would be a shame to miss out. We drove a couple hours to the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. A remarkable outdoor laboratory, offering an opportunity to…

The Fjords

Today we travel from Bergen to Oslo passing through the Fjords, one of the world’s natural wonders. Most tourists choose to travel this route using the very well known “Norway In A Nutshell” tour, which is more like a package of pre-booked public transportation tickets. This tour package comes with a cost premium, so with…

Happy Constitution Day, Bergen!!!

Our flight to Bergen arrived really late, but we were still able to see the mighty Norwegian Fjords from the air. We were so lucky to choose the hostel right above the loudest hostel in the city so since we couldn’t sleep we walked around to see the excitement but didn’t last long because we…

Stockholm Part 3: Opa Gamla Stan!

On the third day in the beautiful city of Stockholm, we woke up early to visit the palace located in the old town, also known as Gamla Stan. The old town was a few minutes walk from our hotel, passing by beautiful old cobblestone  streets. We arrived at the Royal Palace and started our visit…

Stockholm Part 2: The Vasa and Beyond

And we are off with the second day in Stockholm waking up early to take one of the ferries to the museum island (Durjgarden). We decided to only take a One-Way ticket and walk back. The ride takes about 15 minutes of pure pleasure while we navigated the channels on this beautiful day. Our first…

The Life Outside The Strip: Red Rocks

On our last day (or what we thought was going to be our last day) we stopped on the famous Las Vegas billboard sign. There was a huuuge line to get a picture of it, but if you go to the side and you don’t mind that the sign is not perfectly centered, then you can avoid…

Castelo De Vide

We met in the lobby where Sarah got teary as the reality hit that, of their 180-day trip, there were just two left. We departed before 9:30, stopping at a spot on the river with a view of Porto’s iron bridge where Sarah and Eitan shot one of their dancing videos. We continued on for…

Guimaraes

We headed to Guimaraes, a short drive away. It is regarded as the birth place of Portugal and this extensive history is reflected in the variety of national monuments and historic buildings found within the city. Largo Hill is to the north of the city and this area contains the most important historical monuments of Guimarães….
